The 3rd Annual Big Data Conference Provided a Forum for Big Data Challenges

By Nathalie Moreau Students and patrons from the University of Miami (UM) and the Coral Gables community gathered at Miami Business School's Storer Auditorium for the third annual Big Data Conference held on Thursday, December 6, 2018. CCS Center Director Nick Tsinoremas led the organization of the Conference. Tsinoremas explained how the event got its start and said, “We had our first conference about three years ago as a joint effort between the Miami Business School and the Center for Computational Science (CCS).  We knew big data would pose many challenges, and we wanted to provide a forum for conversation between academia and local industry.” The afternoon started off with light refreshments as Conference attendees checked in and mingled around the Storer lobby.  UM’s Provost Jeffrey Duerk offered an opening address, and brought up relatable examples of big data analytics to set the tone for the conversation. “We think about enrollment management and retention of students as a big data problem. Can we do better in selecting the students that will persist and excel in the university as a big data problem and those students who for example may be struggling? Are there ways that we can identify them from a big data perspective?” The first panel "Capability Building for Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence" was moderated by Pete Martinez, CEO of SIVOTEC Analytics, who started the conversation by introducing the first group of panelists: Marvin Mayorga, partner at Data Meaning, Arthur Kordon, CEO of Kordon Consulting, Dr. Mitsunori Ogihara University of Miami Professor, and Sanjeev Taran senior manager at Deloitte. The panel answered a slew of questions from both Martinez and the audience, and used their expertise to better inform on the realities of big data analytics. Panelist Marvin Mayorga, pinpointed the three V’s of big data, volume, variety, and velocity during his discussion. He added that value and veracity were also strong factors when it comes to data analytics. After the conclusion of panel one Martinez expressed what he thought was the most thought-provoking question of the discussion, “My favorite question had to do with how to generate new value from data. Given that the data is there,  what do you do with it? And that is at the core of everything we are doing right now. There is not one straight answer, it depends on the company, what they’re doing, and how much data they have.” The second panel focused on "Data Governance, Privacy, and Cybersecurity in the Era of Big Data." Allison Eng-Perez, Deloitte’s Higher Education sector leader, moderated and introduced guest speakers: Filippo Marino, founder and managing partner of Tegumen, Martin Levy, executive at Diversified Industrials, Dr. Louis Gidel Baptist Health’s Chief Medical Informatics Officer, A. Michael Froomkin, Laurie Silvers & Mitchell Rubenstien Distinguished Professor of Law at UM, and Raimundo Rodulfo, Director of Information Technology at the City of Coral Gables. Glenda Rodriguez, ETL developer at Writer Systems, attended the Conference and was intrigued by the topics discussed in panel two. “I liked the insights that were given. It’s not always about the data, it’s about first finding the problem.  The data is a part of the solution. “ Amuni Logan, a UM Junior and Business Technology major, thinks other students would benefit from attending the Conference. “I would definitely recommend that...

VizUM 2018 Recap and Visualization Competition results

VizUM video by UM student Nathalie Moreau on Vimeo   On November 15th, 2018, the University of Miami hosted its fifth annual VizUM Symposium.  This year’s event was coupled with its first ever Visualization Competition. Before the main speakers took to the stage, the two finalists for the VizUM Visualization Competition were invited on stage to present their work.  The "Visualiz-IRs" and the "UM Analytics" teams were the front-runners of over fifty-four entries for the VizUM competition.  The competition challenged designers, journalists, data scientists, statisticians, professionals and scholars to use open data from Miami-Dade County or the City of Miami to tell a data-driven story. The "Visualiz-IRs" focused on the community of English Language Learners (ELLs) in Miami-Dade schools, while the "UM Analytics" team created an interactive project on pedestrian and motorist traffic accidents in Miami-Dade County. The first invited speaker at this year’s event was Hadley Wickham, the Chief Scientist at RStudio, and an Adjunct Professor of Statistics at the University of Auckland, Stanford University, and Rice University. Hadley builds tools (computational and cognitive) that make data science easier, faster and more fun.  His work includes packages for data science (the tidyverse: including ggplot2, dplyr, tidyr, purrr, and readr) and principled software development (roxygen2, testthat, devtools). During his presentation Hadley walked the audience through the process of using RStudio to create a graphics with just a few lines of code and covered four topics: 1) how to code, 2) why to code, 3) why code a visualization, and 4) visualization functional program code. Hadley explained how visualizations not only communicate data but also why they're a great way to communicate code. Bongshin Lee was the second speaker. Bongshin earned her MS and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland at College Park in 2002 and 2006. With her background in Human Computer Interaction, Bongshin utilizes her expertise to explore innovative ways to create visualizations. In her demonstration of Charticulator, Bongshin was passionate about enabling the creation of visualization without the prerequisite knowledge of code. Though the Charticulator is an ongoing research project, the accessibility of creating visualizations is remarkably intuitive. Bongshin also demonstrated a project she worked on in collaboration with The University of Maryland at College Park and UC Santa Barbara: ChartAccent. ChartAccent allows users to annotate charts with just a few clicks. Though the two speakers took different approaches to visualization (Hadley emphasized using code, while Bongshin was an advocate of graphing without code), it was informative to see these different approaches. Both Hadley and Wickham engaged the audience with examples on how to easily create impactful visualizations and even though their processes differed, there was one constant: their love for data visualization and the shared belief that data visualization should be accessible for all. At the end of the evening, the winners of the VizUM Competition were announced. The "Visualiz-IRs" won first place for their project on English language learners (ELLs) and "UM Analytics" won second place and the People’s Choice Award.  Both teams created captivating visualizations that felt especially relevant to all Miami locals. VizUM is always a time of inspiration where attendees can learn from industry leaders and leave feeling motivated and excited about the possibilities of data visualization. While “visualization is not magic” as Professor Cairo wisely stated, it is a skill...

Post-Event report on 9/21/2018 Student Social Systems Flash Talks

On Friday, September 21st, the CCS Social Systems Informatics program hosted graduate students and postdocs from across the University for an afternoon of networking and flash presentations of their research, at an event titled "Connections, Connections: Student Research in Social Systems @ UM". A program created in 2015, Social Systems Informatics is about modeling (big) behavioral data to understand human and non-human social interactions. The event was informal, with a people bingo game starting off the afternoon and allowing the students and postdocs to connect over things like being Pegasus users, working with toddlers, or working with a model organism. The breadth of disciplines represented in those who attended was staggering:  Students and postdocs from Journalism, Neuroscience, Anthropology, Psychology, Biology, Computer Engineering, Public Health, and Ophthalmology came together, discussed their projects, and left with new ideas of directions they can pursue. One student, who studies mitochondrial diseases using mouse models was inspired by the talk on the deconvolution of toddler speech in classrooms to investigate patterns in mouse vocalizations as a response to injury. Other presentations touched on subjects like the public health implications and innovative interventions that become possible with information on social networks among of opioids users, and improving the diagnostic tools used for autism spectrum disorders using computer vision algorithms. The value of the event is exemplified in a note that we received from another student: “Connections, connections was fascinating! This event was very useful in learning about the diversity of topic contents in which human network analysis could be utilized. I had no idea that social network data analysis for seasonal farm worker women who use opioids could [also be used] to examine classrooms of children with autism spectrum disorder. This event created new social networks, that were not available before, for me to be a part of. Thank you for the opportunity to meet other faculty, students, and researchers across UM departments. I am looking forward to the next Connections, connections event!”   [gmedia...
